Lol those pictures are very forgiving, ive had the dents taken out of it, fitted a correct rear exhaust box, clear repeaters, full body mop and interior valet and touched up alot of chips and marks, unfortunatly emerald green isnt forgiving and need to be polished to stop it looking shabby.

Still its got a full history, MOT and TAX and cost £150 so I cant moan!

I bought an emerald green Xantia last month and i didn't realise how many small blemishes were on it like you said :roll:

Did you have the dents profesionally repaired or did you do them yourself?

For a £150 :shock: looks like a bargain any day of the week !

I work in the trade and we have a "dent man" who does them, a good job he does too, some of them you cant "get at" but it looks loads better!

I wish it was silver!

Yes, but its in the wrong country! And I'm a bit saturated with cars at the moment. You buy it for me, and I'll give you an Acitva!!

How does that sound? :lol: :lol:

Just a quick update, the ZX has now gone :cry: , which was a great shame but I need the cash to buy this

One very tired and highish miles BX 19DTR (a diesel!), but its possibly the only Mk1 "Tres Rich" oil burner left and looked rather sad, so if anyone has anyoen MK1 BX parts they dont need im your new friend!

At least it started life in Somerset Tim, the YA of the DYA registration gives that away...

Somerset is the least corrosive place in the UK for cars, as long as it didn't live on the coast...

I like MK1 BXs :D So, does the DTR bit stand for Diesel Terribly Ratty?

I see rear headrest and sunroof deflector in those pics, they arent on the car now though :roll: tut tut! I want a partial refund.

Yes it was Doms car, needs a bit of work but its in good hands. That towbar came off within an hour of getting home!

Tut tut James, you should know it stands for Diesel Tres Rich!, although you are nearer the mark :lol:
